promise hope and change?

It seems that there are so many things that are going on in this nation and so very often the news media seems to under report focusing on things that are of little importance compared to more serious issues like families, that are hungry, some even homeless, people living in substandard living areas, because they lost their jobs and their homes, it is really a problem.

What can we expect and when will we begin to see the hope the promise and the changes that we all hoped we would see.

The following was received by email, (may not represent the opinions thoughts or views of the owners, and or administrators of this website.)

 

Dear Patriot,

Obama and the Democrats are spending American treasure at a stupefying pace and mortgaging the American dream for our children and grandchildren. This kind of spending is more than just bad policy–it is immoral! Running up trillion dollar deficits without any plan to pay it back is nothing more than stealing from those who are in no position to defend themselves. This generational theft is being advanced by a group of immoral criminals led by President Obama and is not even being used to benefit the American people. Instead, it is being used to enrich a handful of this President’s political allies.

During each spending binge the federal government has been making promises, but how have they done?

1: Promise: If we pass a stimulus package, unemployment won’t go above 8%.
    Result: What did we get for our nearly $800,000,000,000 dollars? Unemployment remains above 9% and more than 14 million people remain out of work with another 30 million people who are still underemployed. The latest job report shows that the economy has gained exactly 0 jobs in the last month.

2: Promise: The only way that we could open up the credit markets for regular Americans was to pump trillions of dollars into the banks.
    Result: The banks pocket trillions of dollars both directly and indirectly (through 0% interest loans from the FED), but credit remains nearly impossible to attain for most Americans. Housing market remains deflated because Americans are unable to qualify for home loans.

3: Promise: ObamaCare will reduce insurance premiums for all Americans and if you like your insurance you will be able to keep it.
    Result: After passage, premiums skyrocket and this increase forces many businesses to stop offering insurance at all.

I could go on and on, but on this Labor Day I want you to think about what you have gotten in return for this government immorally stealing from our children. There is no high speed rail; there is no infrastructure improvement; credit remains locked up; and the housing market remains in the toilet. There are fewer jobs than before, the economy remains in turmoil, people are losing their healthcare, and both social security and medicare are racing towards bankruptcy. This government has mortgaged the prosperity of our children and grandchildren and failed to accomplish ANYTHING!

It is going to take a heroic effort to reverse the damage that has been done over the last few years. We must continue to make our voice heard through our state-of-the-art petition systems, and we must continue to recruit more hard working Americans so that we can expose the corruption that threatens the future of American exceptionalism. For every 25 dollars you contribute, you give us the resources we need to recruit 50 new members. Your generous contribution gives us the resources we need to fight back!

Thank you,

Debt ceiling madness

It may seem hard to understand or even to believe.
However we are facing a real crisis and this one has been coming for a long long time.

Received in an email,
(not necessarily the opinion of the owners of this website)

Debt limit: More of the same?

Tell Washington NO!
Sign the petition: Any proposal must cut spending now and fix the budget process.

Dear Fellow Conservative,

Since the Spring, Washington has been abuzz with debt limit deadlines and rumored deals. But instead of actually solving our spending-induced debt crisis, Washington is delivering more of the same: secretive deals, gimmicks, and tax increases.

Do you want more of the same?

No! Cut spending now and fix the budget process.

Our children and grandchildren deserve a real proposal that cuts spending to squarely address our enormous debt.

Tell Washington: no more business as usual.

Are you with us? Sign the petition.

The Racist Card?

You know, the title here says it all, there are times, when out of respect to the past and the future, we should allow old wounds to heal, but every once in a while someone steps over the line and that is just sad really because so much has changed, over the last ten years.

 

Are we all racist now?

There are still things that will never change, but that does not give us the license to play games with the truth, it is better to be thought a fool sometimes, than to remove all doubt.

Dear Patriot,
 
We're used to baseless personal attacks, but every once in a while it really gets under my skin. This time, I'm flat out angry. Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee (D-TX) once again said that if we oppose this President's historic spending spree, it's because we're motivated by prejudice. She claims that if we don't want to raise taxes while passing mountains of debt to our children, then it's because we're racists.  (really, were all racist?)

Well guess what? I'm not going to stand for this. I know that you oppose raising the debt ceiling because these soaring deficits are devaluing the dollar, because our children should not be forced to fund today's government overreach, and because maybe, just maybe, the government should live within its means!

Here is what I propose: I want to let Sheila Jackson Lee know that we will not stand for this! We oppose any debt increase without REAL and substantial spending cuts because we want what's best for OUR country, unlike Rep. Jackson Lee along with her friends in Congress and the White House who only want to do what's best for their union and special interest cronies at the expense of our children and grandchildren!

Starting Monday, we're going to launch a full on blitz, asking Conservatives across the country – and in her district – to flood her office with faxes and calls telling her that we oppose her and the President not because of the color of their skin, but because they're wrong!

We'll send you more details about how you can help us flood her office, but we need your help right now to fund these efforts. If you're as angry as I am, please help us tell Sheila Jackson Lee that we won't stand for this any longer by making a donation –HERE–

This may be the last opportunity to save America from an agenda of Hate and Evil, Cowards that threaten the American way of life, if you have been on the fence about donating a small amount because you were not sure about what to do now is the time, we need your help even if it is only a few dollars, 5, 10 even 12, dollars, at a time, becuase this may be the last chance you ever have to freely give voice to your opinions, because if the Democrats in the White house have their way, you would be a racist and that is just not true.

Please consider a donation, even just $5.00 would help

Thank you for your support.

Cut Cap Ballance…

Can it be done, or is it just a dream that politicians might one day stand

up like men instead of weeping and crying like children.

Cut, Cap, and Balance

103 House Republicans sent a letter to House Republican leadership calling for a solution that could resolve the current debt limit impasse and prevent the bigger, Greece-like debt crisis just over the horizon: Cut, Cap, and Balance.  

1.  Cut – We must make discretionary and mandatory spending reductions that would cut the deficit in half next year.

2.  Cap – We need statutory, enforceable caps to align federal spending with average revenues at 18% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), with automatic spending reductions if the caps are breached.

3.  Balance – We must send to the states a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) with strong protections against federal tax increases and a Spending Limitation Amendment (SLA) that aligns spending with average revenues as described above.

With each passing day our nation’s fiscal health gets worse, leaving our children and grandchildren falling further into debt. Democrats seem to have given up, proposing even more borrowing in response to our massive debt addiction. With the problem growing larger every day, we must move quickly and unite behind a plan to cut spending and get our budget into balance.
